I became a caregiver because I love people and I love taking care of people. I feel the most useful when I am caring for someone. I believe it was my calling. Being a caregiver is rewarding in an incredible way that cannot be measured. Seeing that smile on a client's face or a simple hand touch as a way of saying "Thank You" is a big accomplishment for my soul. That is what I love about being a caregiver; The appreciation from a client and/or their family. I entered the nursing field as a career change after earning a Bachelor's Degree in Justice Studies. I am kicking myself for not going into nursing much earlier because I really do think this is where I will thrive.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
